A Chaste Maid in Cheapside
Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price
A delightfully lewd city comedy written in 1613 by the co-author of The Changeling.
Thomas Middleton's A Chaste Maid in Cheapside is an intricately plotted play about unscrupulous people in search of wealth, marriage, or sex - and sometimes all three.
Unpublished until 1630 and long-neglected afterwards, it is now considered among the best and most characteristic Jacobean comedies.
This edition of the play in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series is edited and introduced by Emma French.
